't president obama squelching the small business job creator? the republicans like to say that. maybe or maybe just isn't squelching hard enough. otherwise you wouldn't be seeing such monster moves. in other words, business is strong enough to merit companies talking to each other about combining rather than thinking if you stick around and compete, it's almost a matter of time before the other guy keels over. the last man standing game seems like it's history. maybe this is a merger between two companies who failed to keel over. more important, though, it's a merger born of confidence, confidence that despite the runs in the stocks there's much more upside, because things are just plain better than we might realize. even though the stocks are up from where they were, they're still down huge from when times are good. that's the theme behind almost all the deals we've seen, all the ones worth talking about, it's the commonalty of the breathtaking number of takeovers, in a world where they were supposed to have fizzled like last year rather than ratcheting up as seems to be the case now. >>> all
